Brynne and I went to Mary Poppins and it was AMAZING!
Fireworks on the Hudson. They came off six different barges.
Picnic in Central Park!
Phantom of the Opera
The Fray Concert! Best Concert ever, they sound amazing live!
We were pretty close. Unfortunately my camera died about a song and a half into it so these are the good pics I got before it died.
SOOO many people were there. They said 15 thousand on the first level
Jack's Mannequin opened for them.
We got caught in the pouring rain on the way to the ferry. Luckily it cleared up so we could see the city lights. It turned out nicely.
It was soooo nice to have family here. We were getting kinda homesick. Well....when I say we, I mean I was getting homesick...
This guy kept calling colby into this phone booth to sell him a watch. I believe this was his second trip to the phone booth. He was trying to be so secretive. That's Chinatown for you.
Colby in Times Square- He's a giant.
Brynne in Time's Square. So glad she came so I could have a girl with me!
We walked 20 blocks and were pretty tired;)
The Metropolitian Museum
Dan and I at the Cloisters
Museum of Natural History
Our cool lunch spot in the middle of the city.
Since our last post we've had 3 weeks full of fun. Brynne came to visit us from Idaho and Drake and Colby came up from Philly for the weekend. We went all over New York: Museums, Central Park, Time Square, Wall Street, Staten Island, the Bronx, and our favorite China Town. We had a little birthday celebration for Dan's birthday on Sunday. It was a great weekend.
On Friday the 26th it was Dan's 24th birthday. Unfortunately we both had to work that day so we celebrated on Thursday and went to the FRAY concert at Jones Beach. It was so amazing! We had 8th row seats. There was no one 2 seats to our left, right, or in front or behind us. So it was nice to be in a stadium with thousands of people but have our own spot. When Issac (the lead singer) came over to our side of the stage we stood up and he looked right at us and pointed and Dan pointed back and he gave us a peace sign. The girl 2 seats to our left asked us if we knew the band and the couple 2 seats to our right asked who we were;) It was the best concert ever! Not to mention they're our favorite band of all time and they sound even better live than over the radio....and our tickets were free;) Thank you Sony.
Saturday we slept in and then got on the subway and I surprised Dan by taking him to Phantom of the Opera. It's the only Broadway he's wanted to see since we've been here. We again had amazing seats, 5th row, and had a great time! It was a million times better than the movie, and we all know the movies good.
For the Fourth of July I was so bummed that we couldn't be in Melba with all of my family. And on top of it I had to work in the morning. So when I got off work Dan picked me up and had a surprise picnic in Central park planned. We found a good spot and joined the other picnic-ers. It was a great surprise. That night we went to the Hudson river to enjoy fireworks shooting off from 6 different piers. It was a little crowded with easily over a million people but still a great night.
We're now hitting the middle point in our summer in NYC. It's a great place; someday's we love it, other's...not so much. We're excited to see where the future takes us and where we'll be living after August. We're excited for Dan's family to come see us the first week of August. If any body else needs to come see the big apple- our apartment is always open!
